    Now I wouldn't be goign and shooting it up with SUperthrive if you've already given it some in the last month. If you HAVEN'T given it any in longer than 2 months then give it a go. Joel, no idea what you nep would be unless I had a picture for better clarification. All I can do now is imagine. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It kind of sounds like it could be a spotted hirusta, with the description of the peristome.

    Tuyen, it could be a juvenile pitcher if it has hairs on the lid... Meaning, thats not what the adult pitchers look like... That would explain wings, as I dont even think that lower ventricosa pitchers have wings...

    To answer tuyen thi's question. PFT carries a red variety of N.Ventricosa. Since your plant is still young the pitchers are still changing and in time there coloration will come out more. Here's what it needs 70-85 in the day and 55-69 at night is good. Keep it in the shade for now with +60% humidity. Once your plant has put out 2-3 new leaves post here again and we can instruct you how to acclimate your plant to lower humidity.

    Photo's in books are usually of ADULT plants. They look more impressive than if the book were to show baby plants. Upper pitchers of Ventricosa usually have tendrils coming from behind, but lower ones come from all over. It's the same with a lot of other plants too, like Rafflesiana lower pitchers commonly have the tendril coming up the front but upper pitchers from behind. I beleive the PFT Ventricosa are the red form.

    "what type of species is it"
    IT's N. VENTRICOSA!

    BTW, Tuyen please make a new topic instead of asking in somebody elses topic who wants answers too. Everyone forgot about mindmazes question! I notice you seem to always compare your plants with pictures and seem to be dissapointed when you do.

    You should be able to tell N. x tiveyi as it should have a very flared and large peristome. The larger peristome will begin to show in even juvenile pitchers of 3-4 inches Most of them are gold to green resembling the veitchii parent. Good luck.
